Author Alyssa Raeabout this book: 'A Rebel Star' is a story about a girl named Marienela or Mari to her friends. She is a young teenage girl living a privileged life among London's elite upper crust. Her father who happens to be the CEO and part owner of one of the biggest oil companies in the world is fed up with her. Since she just turned down a marriage proposal which would have been a great partnership for both families. He gives her an ultimatum "join me at the company, working your way up from the bottom… otherwise, you will have to leave this house. I will withdraw all financial support and remove you from my life."

Not long before this confrontation with her father, Mari had found her mother's journal which raised many questions concerning her father and his ties to her mother's death, the suffering of her mother's people, the Ogoni, who live in the Nigeria River Delta and who's land is being destroyed by BIG OIL.

In search for answers and with nothing left to lose, Mari finds herself on a plane to Nigeria. Where she will witness firsthand the suffering of the people at the hands of the oil companies. The events that follow show the evolution of Marienela, whose name means "Rebel Star" from a pampered teen to one who willing stands among the oppressed.

• "'A Rebel Star' is an engaging read. Devote a full weekend to be awed. Highly recommended" — Meghan
